I’ll be away for a while

I just posted this on Facebook re: Us and the Thomas fire in Southern California:

“A heartfelt thank you for all the outpouring of loving support. We are safe. Our dogs are safe. Our home is safe. And beautiful Ojai for the most part has remained untouched by fire. To the men and women who have been working round the clock, braving horrific winds and conditions, we are grateful for you. To all the heroes who have helped others in so many ways thank you!!!!!”


Off and on, our electricity and computer connection has been affected. We have friends who have lost their homes. The fires are only 10 % contained and spreading up the coast to Carpinteria (just south of Santa Barbara).

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.
